dispensable nation: american foreign policy in retreat." >> it's very clear to people in the region that we do not want to lead in this region. we are not engaged with the arab spring, whether it's egypt, whether it's syria, whether it's yemen, libya, we want to do less we want to reduce this region's importance in global politics. the president even compared syria to the congo saying, you know, it's just as important or not important and the conflicts in congo. and the message that comes across very clearly is that we don't want to be indispensable in region, and by implication also maybe more broadly. and the region is beginning to look at us as dispensable. >> rose: jason chaffetz, margaret brennan and vali nasr when we continue. captioning sponsored by rose communications from our studios in new york city, this is charlie rose. >> rose: we begin tonight with libya. this week the white house clashed with house republicans over the september 11 2012 u.s. con sol attack in benghazi. in testimony on capitol hill on wednesday, consulate officials questioned the government's handling of the raid

-ton foreign policy elephant. because they're not the ones who caused the war. the cause was, the war was the decision of the civilian in the pentagon, in the white house and some in the state department. and the way that the war played out that in the end the military became the save or your. and general petraeus ended up being the hero of the iraq war with the surge. the surge ended up being the military's solution to a catastrophe caused by civilians. and the military also, as the expression goes, drank its own kool-aid too much on iraq. so it came out thinking that it deserves all the resources it can get, it has the solution to the problem, it really doesn't need civilians, it definitely doesn't need diplomats, and it doesn't needy proposal si. and it thought that it has reinvented the ending of the war. so, you know, in world war world war ii you go to vietnam, you go to balkans, you go to varieties of wars around the world. you know, the war fighters fight the or wars, the diplomats end up negotiating the end. and when you look at the balkans or in vietnam, you know, kissinger,

is flexibility. president obama has never really wanted to have an aggressive foreign policy agenda. he doesn't have that kind of flexibility that you saw with reagan, for example, or with bill clinton. >> no, it is as you say largely self-imposed. i think there were several people in the run-up to the election looked at what he did in troops in afghanistan and some of the other decisions and stuff that this was simply keeping things calm in the run-up to the election. what we've seen, after the election his decisions on syria as you said, this is not a president who wants to have a robust or big or bold foreign policy. so that is not going to win him any marks out there either. >> paul: are we going to see a big budget deal before it is over? the budget issues are sign up but they are going to come back here? >> the other thing is going to come is the debt ceiling biete and republicans fall on their swords it switches the scenario of blaming washington function on the republicans. it's going to be a long, hot summer. >> paul: i don't think he is going back either. events can help out a presi

, presidents can either make their big stamp on foreign policy or domestic policy or do a little bit of both. on foreign policy, he's in a lot of trouble, too. one of the outstanding takeaways from that press conference was really his miserable handling of the syria situation. he doesn't have a lot of mojo from foreign policy. on domestic policy, you're right. the only thing that could be done subpoena something really he's attempting not to wade through because he'll ruin it. what's his legacy? is reminds me a little bit of bush 43 in that right after the ele, when the after social security and lost. and it kind of dulled his momentum. this president, i wonder if he had not gone after gun control, which probably wasn't get bable in the first place, if he had gone right into entitlement reform, corporate tax reform, right into immigration reform, whether he would have been building more momentum. and now i think he's stuck in a lot of these areas. >> senator bayh, what does this president need to do to turn things around? >> it's difficult, chris. the nation's capital and our country's polit
. >> paul: kim, the other thing that second term presidents often have is flexibility on foreign policy. fewer constraints, congress doesn't have the authority it does on domestic issues. but president obama has never really wanted to have an aggressive foreign policy agenda. so he doesn't have that kind of flexibility that you saw with reagan, for example or with bill clinton. >> no, and it is as you say largely self-imposed some people in the run up to the election looked what the did he in terms of troops in afghanistan and some of the other decisions and thought maybe this was simply about keeping things calm in the run up in the election. i think we have seen in particular after the election after syria, this is not a president not a president who wants to have a robust or big or foreign policy. that's not going to win him any marks out there either. >> are we going to see a big budget deal before this is over. the grand bargain very much going to come back here in a couple of months. >> yes. the other thing that's going to come back is the didn't ceiling fight. if the republicans
2006. tonight we will take up president obama's foreign policy failures throughout the broadcast. we began with syria. white house press secretary jay carney earlier today rejecting a united nations report that concludes the chemical weapons are being used by the syrian rebels, not the regime which president obama had declared to have crossed the so-called red line. >> we are highly skeptical of suggestions that the opposition could have or did use cut weapons. we find it highly likely that any type of chemical weapon used that has taken place in syria was done by the regime, and that remains our position. lou: whether skeptical or not, here is the just one week ago announcing that the obama administration was then confident that chemical weapons had been used. and he neglected to mention the white house itself had called for the united nations to investigate those reports. the president by that time was trying to walk back is redline rhetoric while acknowledging we simply don't know what is happening with serious chemical weapons. >> we have established with varying degrees of confi
the potential to derail the agenda? guest: absolutely. foreign policy is always an x factor. in help the president, especially in the second term, because he doesn't have to work with congress, but the flip side is that it can consume this time, energy, the attention of the public, and it can really hurt him. host: nancy, tennessee, hello. caller: good morning. yes, i have one question. how do you get insurance if you have no job to pay for it? guest: under obama care there are subsidies for people in that boat. well, it depends on which state you are in. tennessee, i do not know of your state has accepted the expansion of medicaid, but it covers people after a certain percentage of the proper level and it will rise. you will be eligible for medicaid. where tennessee is on this. list once the exchange's up. when people fall through the cracks, yes, more people will have insurance than before. host: we are moving onto clinton ca, connecticut. caller: morning. it seems to me that we're spending a lot of money in overseas countries but we have a major about the problems in our , we coul
on immigration, civil rights, foreign policy, government union, and especially liberal education warrant considerable attention by politicians today. this is, i believe, was he was a religious man. he didn't think a republic was possible without moral and religious education. and he believed that holy command you should know the truth and set you free. ought to be the guiding principle in all of our educational system as well as our republic. america, he argued, was founded by religious man. it's finest schools succeeded because they shape souls as well as opinions. and as we know, great presidents are products are of the education. he knew well the value of education because the political thought was shaped. .. >> the ambassador to mexico and secretary of commerce and attorney-general and supreme court justice don't never philosophically and perhaps physically far from his professors flexors -- lectures he never forgot them. he believes that would refresh the sole to bring just reward from the here and now. we looked upon gorman as a man who walked with god and his course was a demonstr
, the president's critics claim that president obama's leading from behind on his foreign policy crisis. here's rudy giuliani on "meet the press" this morning. >> a lot of action could have been taken a year ago that may have precluded this. i think they'd be well advised to be more proactive, things are heating up. >> what will the u.s. involved going forward? joining me from washington, former middle east negotiator jackie skucinich of the washington post. good to see all of you on this sunday afternoon. what more could we have done to prevent the situation from deteriorating to the point we are now. >> there have been calls for a long time for americans to be more involved in providing aid to rebels opposition forces in syria. it is unclear whether aid would fall into the hands of islamists and people opposed in the united states. it gets messy at this point. you wrote this article recently and say in part, there's a lot that's merurky for syria right now. a messy situation is about to get a whole lot messier. messier in what way? >> well, we have to set this in a broader context. we're co
? >> guest: yes, absolutely. the idea that the united states needs to base foreign policy in the future on us, our little country without our dwipped ling resources, that somehow because of our rough comedy of purpose with democracies, we believe in freedom, roughly speaking, because of that, we are somehow going to be important to you in the future, i think, couldn't be more wrong. the united states has to base a thorough good analysis where the world stands in vis-a-vis the united states, on relationships more difficult relationships, but, ultimately, much more productive relationships with the world's coming powers, and, obviously, china is absolutely prime among them. that doesn't mean that you completely dismiss us or that on occasions we don't do useful business together, that doesn't mean on occasions it's useful, stim, for an american president to come to london and see the queen and beam the pictures across the united states, but, actually, when you think about who americans are in future generations, where they come from, what they believe in, the idea that they have the same since
in u.s. foreign policy. israel launched at least two air strikes against syria in just the past three days. officials say it's an effort to prevent weapons from falling into the hands of hezbollah. this morning israel is readying its iron dome missile defense shield after promises of retaliation by syrian forces. >>> meanwhile, there's a new u.n. report saying anti-government activists may have been behind the reported use of chemical weapons and not the regime. president obama said previously the use of such weapons could constitute a red line for u.s. intervention. senator john mccain used those words to undercut him sunday. >> the whole situation is becoming more and more expansive and unfortunately the red line that the president of the united states was written was written in disappearing ink. >> those comments comes days after chuck hagel refused to speculate on military intervention plans and john kerry heads to moscow today for talks with russian leaders. nbc's martin fletcher is in tel aviv for us. good morning to you, martin. some saying this attack could even be a message t
foreign policy. that cause is vital, not only for the united states, but for the world. i am delighted to see so many current and future leaders. president obama has recently embarked on a second term. secretary of state kerry has already traveled to the middle east and europe and asia. c ofgiven the existence of telephones and other modern conveniences, this much flying around may seem odd, but it does reflect the complexity of the current moment and the urgency we all feel about finding solutions. the good news is that the president and his team began position than they did four years ago. i said then that every new formcan president inherits of an international emergency crisis, two wars, and the steepest decline in america's international standing since the anon. i think we have made steady progress. we have brought our combat against al qaeda, weakening and scattering its support structure and eliminating osama bin laden. with help from our nato allies, we ended 40 years of dictatorship in libya. the administration has used diplomacy to tighten multilateral sanctions against iran,
's a strong influence behind pakistan's foreign policies. that's one reason why the future of anti-terror operations depends on the next government's relationship with the army. >> thank you. and that was nhk world's mubarik. >>> pakistan is important for regional security it is the last of the international forces withdrawn next year. now tomorrow we'll look at the domestic challenges the country faces. i'm dhra dhirakaosal reporting from islamabad. >>> the world's biggest fleet of boeing 787 dreamliners will soon be back in regular service. managers at japan's al nippon airways say technical glitches that grounded the planes for months will be fixed and the aircraft will take off on june 1st. crews modified the battery systems and conducted test flights to make sure the dreamliners are also safe. managers say the planes will fly on five international routes and 12 in japan. airlines around the world grounded their 787s in january because of problems with the battery system. u.s. aviation authorities and japanese transport ministry said last month airlines could fly their 787s onc
talks about the situation in syria and president obama's foreign policy agenda. >> my pleasure to welcome former secretary of state madeleine albright. she is excited to take our questions from our members and unlike what it might say in your program, her remarks are on the record. so please tweet away all of your little vip and staff and member cards. i will say your twitter handle. we're all about the social media right now. so tweet. as you all know secretary albright has been a beacon of american leadership and values around the world. both as secretary of state and as ambassador to the united nations. beyond that though she serves for many of us as a role model. she is sort of a north star for strong, principled national security policy. she reminds us that america is the indispensable nation, not the only nation that makes a difference but the one required to bring most of the other nations together. and she is a strong woman who worked in foreign policy. the first secretary of state to be a many would, something many of us can forget now, there are so many in her shadows
of the chinese delegation and he said it's just an instrumentity of american foreign policy. we had gone from neglecting asia to co-on thing the whole system. those are the kinds of things that anti-piracy and proliferation security initiative are certainly ways that south korea can take a lead and can play a collaborative role with it neighbors and hopefully china will get on board. china is one of the few countries that hasn't decwroined psi. probably because taiwan is anytime and they don't want to be a part of that. those are areas there could with b cooperation and i'm sure president park wants to bring china into those if at all possible. >> would you please go over to the podium please? >> i have two questions. microphone on please. >> just yesterday i came upon this very interesting article. i forgot the name of the author but he reviewed this book by victor char who serve on the administration in an important capacity. and what was said today i'm having on the other side that article in mind and these two questions going back and forth. one is as you pointed out is that the pattern o

. but sometimes they miss nato's du discussion, we have to recall that in foreign policy, the e.u. plays a phenomenal role in terms of it not voluntary assistance. nonmilitary preventative assistance is provided to a large proportion by the european union. 60% of foreign aid comes to the european union. when we talk about burden sharing, if we talk about being fair, we have to take those numbers into account. i do hope that this cooperation will flourish and i hope the europeans will take the military response abilities more seriously. thank you further explanation than remarks, which will help us continue with our work ahead of the summit. thank you again for coming to join us.

: it depends what you are looking for. i read stuff about foreign policy that is enough for everyone's taste. >> host: in just a little while we will show the books that influenced you and maybe you could take a look at that list and go from there for that caller. here is a tweak finally a woman after my own heart and mind it too bad her web site only shows about 1/8 of the content. >> guest: which web site? >> host: i am not sure i have been on nominee phil lipstick, the whole flock is there. >> guest: there is a problem on my personal web site with the archives have been subjected to a technical glitch in there is great difficulty to access it which i do apologize but of "the daily mail" columns are there. they can access the recent columns of got a problem but i think that is probably what this person is referring to. several years back there is a problem to access the archived material. >> host: how much of the electronic book will be published? >> guest: there are bits of books but it is different templates for different books. i don't want to do about those aside -- excitements but so
't change american foreign policy. we will be less dependent on oil from the middle east. concern is that china today gets 70% of its energy supplies from the middle east. india is about the same. europe as well. in the global economy is so interlinked that even if the u.s. is not dependent on middle eastern oil, i feel like the instability in the region where the chinese economy and the european economy. so, you know, i think we should step back and do less, but i don't think we can ignore the middle east because it is going to -- turbulence there will impact the worldwide oil prices. and we have seen it with the european debt crisis. if our economic problems in europe, we have economic problems here. >> going back to the question, if you think about today it is not the middle east, but you have this same moderate and we hope, some moderate muslims. then you have the ruling elite who are very radical muslims. how can we support the moderates without changing the many as of their own people? it is a problem. it could be a problem in egypt. it certainly is a problem in pakistan tha
foreign policy credibility would be harmed, to which every sane person in the united states and around the world is saying what credibility? >> from the standpoint iraqi people, my belief is we will be greeted as libber ators. >> and ballistic missiles threaten the peace and security of many nations. >> we don't want the smoking gun to be a mushroom cloud. >> richard wolff, there's our credibility. the previous administration did everything it possibly could to eliminate any notion of worldwide credibility for american foreign policy predictions or pronouncements. >> lawrence, i think you're being unfair. they did say there were red lines over iraq, and saddam hussein, being saddam hussein, crossed them. you can't doubt their sincerity of desire to go to war. the weapons of mass destruction were overstated. they did in fact invade iraq. >> yeah, they were incapable of changing course in their predetermined desires of what to do, no matter what kind of information came their way, there wasn't any kind of intelligence that could derail them from where they were going in iraq. >> which is
on the president's plate when it comes to foreign policy. three weeks ago this was a crisis. that was being dealt with on an almost 24-hour basis. trying to figure out a way to deescalate the tensions between the north and the south. and all of a sudden, one terrorist attack later and you see the north koreans almost were looking for a way to deescalate themselves. they weren't sure clearly calling the bluff worked. in some form or another. so the question is, what more have we learned about what the policy is in dealing with them going forward. you're right, the two bigger questions, possibly loom large in here depending on where the questioning goes. one is, what is our syria policy right now, right? has it changed? we've heard the president say certain things would be a game-changer. certain things would cross a red line. i think there needs to be, there's some fundamental sort of let's get back to the basics here. what is exactly our policy right now on syria. and then you're right, on the benghazi, with the testimony happening tomorrow, i imagine there are more questions that come out of it
for him but he could have given a grand strategic vision for foreign policy, domestic policy, and instead he thinks wholly incapable of giving a speech that it not all about him and a speech that is not attacking attacking and knocking his opponents he gave a very prickly speech, why me, about those who omose me and my vision of big government then, you shouldn't listen to them. rather than say, listen, america is all about very robust debate. we're about the free market place and the train wreck of idea. he doesn't do that. he never does that. so, this kind of speech actually was more like an indoctrination speech because he is talking to young kids. a commencement speech should be about their future. >> neil: it wasn't. i want you to respond. this touch on something you were talking about. >> unfortunately, you've grown up hearing voices that incessantly warn of government as nothing more than some separate sinister entity that is at the root of all our problems. neil knoll what do you think of that? >> i was being somewhat sarcastic, as i told you election night you said, he'll unify a
of foreign policy. yourself, when is the last time you saw a stage full of latinos talking about foreign policy. let's talk about it for a second. is headed to venezuela in a few days and we all know the passing of hugo chavez, there is great conversation and consideration, concern really, about what happens in the region. there is a broader conversation about u.s. policy in latin america, in central america. there's a lot we could talk about. since we're talking about it, what are you going to venezuela for? the will be part of observation process, invited by the national electoral council for the elections in venezuela one week from tomorrow. i will be visiting polling places and so forth. my organization has a 20-year- old developer program that exposes and latino leaders to other countries. we have done a lot of work in mexico, central american, the caribbean, venezuela, observing elections, providing technical assistance, and so forth. you're right. it's a very crucial moment. although a hugo chavez was demonized in the united states, in latin america, there's quite a different pers

things about foreign policy and trying to work out what is going on. >> host: we will be talking about the books that influenced you and go from there. this is a tweet for you. finally, a woman after my own heart and mind. too bad her website is only showing about one eighth of the content. >> guest: which website? >> host: i'm not sure. >> guest: there is a problem on melanie phillips.com, some of the archives have been restricted due to a terrible technical glitch. and there is a problem accessing it. if so, i apologize. but people can access the recent columns without a problem. how much will be published? >> guest: there are bits of it. and it will be a different template for different books. and they are about to be put up in the next few days. but as people look at the website of the next two days, enables the what we are delighted about and that includes published books. we download the books, but there is a certain amount of video material already there. and there will be more. which will be a new way of giving people a taste of the books that are available on embooks.com. >> h
